. but you also had what was news was new voices being heard. voices who are known as being totally nra supporters and total second amendment supporters and pro gun senators. starting with senator joe manchin from west virginia. conservative democrat. probably got 100% rating from the nra. told cnbc yesterday nobody needs these assault weapons. >> i've been hunting with anyone with an assault weapon. i've never been hunting with anyone with multiple clips with 10 20, 30 rounds in it. in deer hunting, we have three shells in our gun and that's the sport of what we do. and i just think that when you have chuck schumer my friend chuck schumer basically saying we should look at the larger clips, those are something we should be talking about. >> bill: absolutely. should be talking about it. senator mark warner from virginia also got elected because he was a strong supporter of gun rights in the commonwealth of virginia. said yesterday enough is enough. now's the time. >> i had an nra rating of an a. but you know, enough is enou
of this unspeakable crime. out of respect for the families and until the facts are known, the n.r.a. has refrained from comment. while some have tried to exploit tragedy for political gain, we have remained respectively silent. now we must speak for the safety of our nation's children. because for all the noise and anger directed at us over the past week, no one, nobody has addressed the most important pressing and immediate question we face, how do we protect our children right now, starting today n a way that we know works? the only way to answer that question is to face the truth. politicians pass laws for gun free school zones, they issue press releases bragging about them. they post signs advertising them. and in doing so, they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. how have our nation's priorities gotten so far out of order? think about it. we care about our money so we protect our banks with armed guards. american airports, office buildings, power plants, courthouses, even sports stadiums are all protected by armed
, both the n.r.a. and those opposed to the n.r.a. never bring up the point of the second amendment that when it was written there was no such thing as an automatic or even semi-automatic weapon. these were all blocks, for god's sake. the law has to be brought up to date. so i'd like to hear your answer to both of those problems. i'll take it off the air. thank you. guest: charles, i appreciate those questions and certainly our guns and weapons of choice have changed throughout the years and our laws have changed as well. it's my understanding the state of connecticut had the type of gun laws that have been proposed and they didn't work. at the end of the day it's an individual person, it's a people problem. and changing laws doesn't necessarily change hearts. it is a cultural problem as well. that's why i don't think we need to change these laws but we need to look at an issue of society where violence has become acceptable in many avenues and simply need to turn on the television many nights to see that. the first question was about the top 2% and class warfare and what is going o
restrictions yet. the nra, which traditionally has the power to hurt democrats in red straigates who support gun control, has been notably silent. after shooting spree in the movie theater in colorado, several lawmakers from red states told me they definitely feel the nra's clout still here on capitol hill, and just being, wolf, in senator feinstein's front office for five minutes, i could see the phones ringing off the hook about her call to revive or reinstate the assault weapons ban. at least make that the first piece of legislation in the new congress but it is very interesting it's not just the nra keeping mum right now, republican senators, most of them who we've talked to, are declining interview requests. they just don't want to talk about it quite yet. >> we'll see what happens down the road. dana, thank you. >>> this unimaginable tragedy. adults are desperately struggling to comprehend, so how do you possibly begin to talk about this with your children? our own dr. sanjay gupta, he's getting some new information for us. he'll be joining us shortly. fr. ♪ ...could end with adding
of action both democrats and republicans. host: why is that? guest: n.r.a. says we have the right to bear arms and we shouldn't limit that right in any way. if anything, as you know, there have been comments in the last few days that encourage more americans, to carry guns. we need to refute that and stand up. and one thing is this terrible tragedy has done for those of us who have always thought we should do more to make sure we are safe and children are safe and for those who have not stood up, you know what, we need to stand up and ensure our children are safer and we need to do something to make sure that dangerous guns don't get in the hands of criminals or those who are mentally ill. host: is that your message to red state democrats? guest: it's to everyone. let's do something. we have seen it so many times. there would be one crime where we would give it a longer sentence and stand up immediately to make sure we would keep people safe because something horrendous happened. why are we not doing that when we see one horrendous tragedy, multiple students. we have seen it in movie thea
instructions on how to shoot a .22 rifle from an n.r.a. trained supervisor at my camp, at summer camp. and i wasn't a bad shot. i won a couple of those merit badges for marksman and sharpshooter. and a few years ago, i had the ability to visit with my colleague -- our colleague, ben nelson. he took me out pheasant hunting. i really enjoyed the experience. so we have to acknowledge that guns are a way of life and that the second amendment has a rightful place in the constitution. that you cannot interpret the first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth amendments broadly as possible and say the second amendment should be seen through the pinhole of militias, it only affects militias. that's only fair. but then we have to have our colleagues on the other side acknowledge that, yes, there's a second amendment right. and, by the way, the heller decision now makes that the law of the land so i hope our folks who are progun realize that no one's going to take their guns away. before the heller decision, you know, there was a view, every bit of gun control is a way to eventually confiscate the hunting rifle
